How you spend your time in college is completely in your hands, so don’t waste your experience. A quote that got me through this past year is by James Orbinski. He said, “What I’ve experienced is that I can’t know the future. I can’t know anything that I do will change what happens tomorrow, I can’t know with certainty but what I do know is if I do nothing, nothing will change.”
